2007 Lexus ES 350 User Reviews
- No trim specified for this review
- Beautiful car! Surprisingly good fuel economy.
- Rattles! Engine sounds like a diesel. Tinny stereo system.
This is my first and likely my last Lexus automobile. With just under 9,000 miles the car sounds like it is literally falling apart with numerous rattles that sound like they are coming from the instrument panel. The arm rest rattles. The doors rattle. The stereo system is simply lousy with very cheap sounding speakers. I should have given the sound system a thorough test when I first looked at it. The engine makes loud knocking sounds when cold. I suspect severe piston slapping as the oil level is fine. It honestly sounds like a diesel engine until it warms up completely. I came very close to choosing an Acura TL before purchasing the Lexus (wife pressed for the Lexus) and I wish that I had stuck to my guns with the Honda product. All in all I am very frustrated and will not recommend a Lexus purchase to anyone.
